I decided for my second summer after college to work for a kids camp. It seemed like a great idea because I would get paid a good amount of money to play games with kids, while also getting free food and housing. What did I have to lose? I think I underestimated a job that I would spend 95% of my day outside in the summertime. Each day it felt like it got hotter and hotter, yet there was not any flexibility to go inside as you pleased. I would try to plan activities that required a lot of sitting down, little movement, or could be done in shaded areas. This was difficult because I was a very active person and loved to play sports and move about. However, the heat made me feel very different about that. There were specific times of day that I looked forward to; 10am, 1pm, and 7pm. There were the times that indoor activities were scheduled. When the A.C. would hit my face, it would be the biggest relief of the day. It was then that the whole day would catch up with me and I was able to actually enjoy where and what I was doing. The A.C. was always so cold that it also made you want to curl up and take a nap. It was really hard to get up and leave it behind. Some of the camp counselors would find a way to extend their time in the cool air, by faking injuries and illnesses, as well as hiding and avoiding certain activities when possible. This summer proved to be very long and was certainly the last spent this way.
